PreSchool-Grade 2-In this latest installment in the series, the endearing mouse is off on a camping trip to the Big Cat Mountains with her cousin Henry and Uncle Louie. Arriving at their destination, the youngsters are assigned the chore of gathering firewood. Not surprisingly, they find exploring much more to their liking and forget all about the task at hand. Night falls and the two realize that they are lost in the woods. Scary sounds and shadows appear, rain pelts down, and there is concern that Big Cat itself may make an unwelcome appearance. However, Angelina is up to the challenge and frightens the creature away when it arrives. Soon after, Uncle Louie finds the duo. They spend the night recounting their adventure and promising never to run off again. The illustrations are typical Craig-light and whimsical with lots of detail. The picture of Henry and Angelina dancing around the campfire while their uncle plays the squeeze box is especially appealing. With PBS broadcasting the "Angelina" series, this book is sure to be popular.
